So, I’m beyond exhausted at this moment, but I thought I would jot down a few notes before I crashed for the night.
This race event/weekend is still far from it’s former glory. Leaps and bounds as far as the preamble goes.
Today was a day of one step forward/two steps back. So many things were ‘this close” to being great, but fell short. :insert wah wah wah sound:
Things that were great, which mostly had nothing to do with this weekend’s event. My racing yaya’s are in town. There are friends, there are childhood friends, there are everyday friends and then there are racing friends. Racing friends get it. They get the joy of burning eyes and throats from being on pitlane. The get the frantic schedule. They get the ear to ear grin that only time at a race track can evoke.
I had a great time at the street party. (much room for improvement dddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddd
oops.. I literally nodded off there. (so beyond tired right now)
Highlights of my day: Seeing Bronte get her first ever 2-seater ride with Tags as the driver.
Getting a pace car ride with Stefan Wilson on my home track *woot*
watching the IndyCar drivers who weren’t on “our side of the fence” watching the San Jose moment between Tags and PT from on track incident to off track throwdown. I don’t think I’ve ever seen either Dario or Will as animated as They were earlier. (pics later) dddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddd
shit… fell asleep again, so I’m gonna bail on this and prepare for the morning.
